Use a grayscale color palette.  If I remember right, R's grayscales are
quite well printed on a B/W printer (and if I remember properly, much
better than S-plus' grayscales).

Try the following example  


   data(VADeaths, package = "base")
   barplot(VADeaths, col = gray(seq(0,.9, len=6)))

   system("gv gray-bars.ps &")
